Addsum web site and general info

Postings here will focus mainly on Advanced Accounting software updates, tips, and related topics. They will also include general comments relating to troubleshooting PC/Windows/network problems and may also include reference to our other software products and projects including any of our various utilities, or to the TAS Premier programming language. We considered setting up separate blogs for different topics so that users/others could subscribe to topics mostly aligned with their interests, but decided that it would be better to keep things simple since some topics cross over into others. We would nonetheless welcome your feedback/input in this regard. Our web site URL is Call us at 800-648-6258 or 801-277-9240. We also maintain so that older Business Tools users in particular have a greater chance to find us.

AccuWage Submitter EIN and Employer/Agent EIN matches alert

When testing 2014 electronic file W-2 submissions, the SSA's AccuWage software may provide this alert:

This is a non-critical alert or warning message.

If you are submitting a file on behalf of your own company, then the Submitter EIN and Employer/Agent EIN are in fact going to be the same.   Nothing in that event is wrong.

In an era where employers are being encouraged to upload their information electronically, it is somewhat peculiar for end users to encounter this sort of warning which presumably is designed more to help tax practitioners catch mistakes prior to submitting files on behalf of others.
